Ted Shelton, exec VP of operations at Orb Networks (provider of place-shifting software for video-on-demand, see previous posts, a.o. on March 30) informs me that the company opens its software to the developer community. They can now build add-ons.
Sounds like a smart move. It will add value and make the product even more interesting to all sorts of service providers (for now: Sprint, Cingular and French ISP Ozone, which operates a WiFi network in Paris). Both fixed and wireless service providers, especially the ones with interesting content, could use Orb to add value, enhance the service offering and differentiate in the crowded marketplace.
